Escaping Christmas by Marie Landry

Am I Allergic to Men?

(The Callaghan Sisters #5)

by Kristen Bailey


You think you’ve got it bad? I lost my memory, I’m so single I’ve basically got an allergy to men, and my own cat despises me.
‘Lucy! If you can hear me, squeeze my hand!’
That’s the first thing I hear when I wake up in hospital. Then my sister drops a bombshell: I’ve been in a coma.
It gets worse. In my head, it’s 2009 and I’m seventeen. Somehow, I need to remember the last decade…
Plan A: Track down my exes. Highlights include a one-night stand with someone in a Batman costume, and balcony sex that gave the neighbors a nervous breakdown.
Plan B: Get flirty. Lowlights include a fling with someone hairier than a yeti.
Plan C: Figure out why I have more exes than underwear. Am I allergic to men?
As I piece together my past, I find a mysterious note: Oscar, 9th February. Determined to work out what it means, I uncover a secret I’ve been hiding from everyone.
When the truth comes out, will my memory return? Will I get my life back? And will I ever find the cure to my singledom?
You’ll laugh so much your abs ache! The perfect page-turner for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Lindsey Kelk, and TV shows like Schitt’s Creek.

My Rate: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5 

My rate: This book was fascinating. Lucy had the “opportunity” to analyze her own life and choices as an outsider. I loved her journey of understanding who was, who she became and who she wanted to be. It was amazing to see her journey, in acceptance and find out how she became who she was in her 30s. I believe most of us, also get to a point in life and think “How did I get here?”, just like Lucy. To be fair, I’m 20 years old, not exactly questioning much of my life decisions yet, but I loved seeing Lucy going through that.

It was hilarious and interesting and it hooked me from “page” one.

My audiobook rate: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

The narration was a bit confusing. A lot of the characters had very similar voices, which confused me at times, but it was still very awesome to listen to this book.

Adjectives and general thoughts: This book is about a fascinating, hilarious, and interesting journey, into finding out “How did I get here?”

Bye sassy people! 


  • I know that some comments I make about decent guys on my posts are the bare minimum a guy should do, so no, they don’t deserve to be treated like gods for doing the minimum, but at the same time, I’ve read a lot of sexist books and I appreciate authors who make characters that can serve as role models and examples of how a decent guy acts and what a loving and respectful relationship looks like. I believe we should always encourage these authors and bring attention to the ones that still write sexist characters and stories. 
  • I make a lot of comments about sexism and healthy role models in books, but a lot of times these characteristics don’t make the book a bad book and definitely don’t make the author a bad author. Please never shame these authors and these books for these comments, I simply feel that we need to have awareness of the less than ideal situations some books bring us, and not use the romanticized problem as examples of what a relationship should be. Most of these authors are still amazing, and the content they write doesn’t reflect directly with their personal views and opinions. Always make sure to respect and be kind to everyone, even while criticizing their content.

One of my goals in analysing my readings was to talk about important topics, like feminist and consent, because literature, art and culture influence us, and I believe we should always encorage authors who talk about this topics.
